OMG Good Goulash
It is autumn in Michigan and we all need some warming hearty food to keep us through the this preview of weather to come.
Sauté 2 small or 1 large yellow onion in olive oil over medium-low heat
Add one pound of fresh ground beef (Or moose or buffalo or turkey). Brown and drain off fat
Add one can stewed tomatoes
Add 2 tsp. “Better than Bullion” brand beef broth in 2 cups hot tap water.
Add some chopped cauliflower (I put in a whole head)
Add pepper, cumin, oregano, anise seeds, and plenty of paprika. At least 1/2 tsp of each!
Simmer for 20-30 minutes
Add whole grain macaroni or rotini pasta, which states to cook it for 10 minutes, but you should cook it for 20 minutes. When the pasta is done put 1 or 2 tablespoons of unbleached white flour in a small container with about a ½ cup of cold water, seal with a tight lid and shake it really good until there are no lumps. SLOWLY stir this flour water a splash at a time into the goulash until it reaches the right thickness. The amount of thickness is completely up to you, as this is a very personal decision.
After the herbs and spices have simmered a bit THEN add salt to taste.
